Marchas de Elefantes, 1998 – Madrid⠀⁣
Video, Darya von Berner⠀⁣
Mercado de Fuencarral⠀⁣
Madrid, 1998⠀⁣
Duration: 0:44, loop⠀⁣
At the Mercado de Fuencarral (Madrid), Marcha de Elefantes was shown in the format of a multi-media installation. On several monitors, in and outside of the market, the video of an elegant couple walking in front of a homeless, was shown on a loop. Again, the work emphasized the notion of habitat loss and its problematic in the context of a city.⠀⁣

Production: Laagencia (Vicente Matallana)⠀⁣
The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀⁣
The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances.⠀⁣
